Dzialdowo Castle

Dzialdowo, Poland

Teutonic Knights conquered the Dzialdowo region and built a castle in the early 14th century. A wing of the castle still remains. The new settlement near the castle founded by Mikołaj z Karbowa and named Soldov was granted town privileges on 14 August 1344 by the Grand Master Ludolf König. The name Dzialdoff was first written on a 1409 map during the Polish–Lithuanian–Teutonic War.

A baroque building in the very center of the city, on Adam Mickiewicz Square, built in the 18th century. It houses some departments of the City Hall, as well as the multimedia museum of the State of the Order of the Hospital of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the German House in Jerusalem.

Two stars for the fact that 10 years ago it was certainly a modern museum. Now, unfortunately, it is very different from many that I currently visit. There seems to be a lack of resources. Computers broken, projectors display films so that you can barely see them. Several things didn't work at once. When one person turns on the movie, it's hard for the other to focus, because everything "talks" at the same time - there are no headphones. The big screen in the last room was burnt... It was a multimedia museum - but 10 years ago. It's a pity, because there's a lot of knowledge to share. It's really sad that no one is subsidizing it.

Interesting museum on the first floor, a lot of interactive exhibits, a large interactive mock-up of the Battle of Grunwald. It is a pity that so many exhibits do not work. In the attic, a fantastic place for children, with many attractions for larger and smaller children. Worth a visit and a hidden and little advertised place.

The city of Działdowo is much larger than it seems. Initially, I planned a visit for 2-3 hours, but ... I ended up at the Borderland Museum. And I was stuck for almost 2 hours. Despite the fact that the museum is not large (you can even say small), it surprises us with a huge amount of knowledge about the Teutonic state, its beginnings and activities in Poland (and not only). This knowledge is presented in a very interesting way, the interactive media is well prepared and everyone will find something for themselves. There are not too many exhibits, but you cannot tear yourself away from simulations, video projects, 3D shows and boards. We'll find out a lot of things here that they didn't say in school, but I won't anticipate the facts. Let everyone see it with their own eyes and hear it with their own ears. There is an attic for the little ones. What is not there. Armory for boys, changing room for girls, you can take pictures of yourself in (virtual) costumes of knights, ladies of the court, etc. etc. There are interesting games, treasure hunt, you can listen to the sounds of the Middle Ages, and also ... find a real dungeon. And after the fun - you must visit the castle.

A lot of multimedia presentations are worth visiting, with the splendidly presented Battle of Grunwald

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
